My lovely lady and I met during a study abroad trip I took with my university to Chile in the summer of 2005. Shortly after my return to the States, we started to talk via telephone, email, and MSNM. By the time Oct.-Nov. rolled around, I knew this was the woman I was born to be with. Since then I have made several extended-stay trips to Chile, the longest being 2 months. I plan on making the last return-home-alone trip in Aug. of 2007. Si Dios quiere, I'll have my wife in tow.
